Hello everybody,

as it may be customary for the upcoming season the Amarok team did some
spring cleaning and is proud to announce the immediate release of Amarok
2.9.0. While we realize that the clock has run out on KDELibs 4 and Qt
4, we wanted to bring 20+ bug fixes from 18 contributors to our users
before the next major release will harness all the shiny new things
provided by Qt 5 and KDE Frameworks 5. In fact, the port is already
progressing nicely in the Git 'kf5' branch, which is soon to become the
new ‘master’ branch. We welcome everybody willing to help out to check
out the source code and improve the next major version of Amarok!
